    Hello everybody,

    I was wondering if on top of a mountain there is any kind of limit to go down-in my case over the city ?

    Thank you

    Hope someone else answer for sure but I read somewhere that it is 200m. I could be wrong

    I think it can go farther than 200m, not sure with newest Go app and firmware though

    You're most likely right but 500m up and 200m down is what I am thinking

    It is a really nice video, I guess I should point out it is not my own, just one I saw and liked from YouTube.

    I wonder if their was a video connection throughout the flight. Is Lightbridge's range that far?! And does the P3A have the same range?

    The P3 Pro and Advanced have Lightbridge and it has a range of multiple miles.

    Awesome! The P3A is more friendly with my budget. Besides the 4K, anything else I would be missing out on if I buy the P3A, not pro?

    4K video and a slightly faster charger - otherwise they are the same.

    The thing that sold me on the Pro vs the advanced was the higher bitrate video downlink. I will probably never utilize it now but I initially thought I wanted it. Also bestbuy had a sale the Pro was $1159 with a free extra battery so that was basically the same cost as an advanced plus a battery. (when the advanced was selling for $1000). The advanced is such an awesome deal now I just don't know if I could justify the pro at the current prices.

    Agree with Sinisalo. Own a standard and pro. Standard for when it might not come back and pro for when it counts. Advanced is a happy medium
